Best Cardiac Diagnostic Surgeon In India

Our modern lifestyle with high stress levels, lack of physical activity and unhealthy diet has led to a rapid increase in the incidence of heart diseases. Due to the high mortality rate and complications associated with heart disease, it has become necessary to undergo regular preventive health checkups for timely detection of heart disease.

A number of cardiac diagnostic services available are as follows –

 

64 Slice heart scan

This is a non-surgical procedure that reveals detailed images of the heart and blood vessels supplying the heart (coronary arteries). In this system, X-rays are used to obtain cross-sectional (slice) images of high quality similar to those obtained using invasive techniques. It helps in detecting the blocks and deposits, calcium build-up, and also non-calcified plaque deposits in the arteries of the heart, which may cause a heart attack. As the scan time is very short, the patient is required to hold his breath for only 10 seconds, making it comfortable for people of all ages.

 

Holter heart monitor test

A Holter heart monitor is a small EKG machine (about the size of a cassette player) that continuously monitors your heart beat and records your heart's rhythms. It is worn in a sling across the shoulder, under your clothes for 24 to 48 hours, while you are doing daily activities.

 

Event heart monitor

This is another type of portable monitor, that continuously records the action of your heart and monitors your cardiac activity as you go about routine activities. When a button is pushed, it saves or records the readings of the last three minutes. It is worn for two days or two weeks, depending on when a cardiac symptom occurs. This monitor sends your ECG recordings by telephone to a transmission center in the hospital, doctor’s office or clinic, to alert your doctor in case of an emergency.

 

320 slice CT Scanner

This is an advanced imaging system, be used to obtain an image of the entire heart in a single rotation. It uses X-rays to obtain cross-sectional images or “slices “of the targeted area, thus offering clearer image quality. It shows the structure of the heart, along with the changes that have taken place over the time, and helps to detect early coronary artery disease, which may cause narrowed or blocked vessels in the heart in future. With the help of accurate images, your doctor can advise you on how to prevent further narrowing of vessels.

 

Transesophageal echocardiography

This procedure uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to obtain detailed pictures of your heart and the arteries supplying it. It helps to detect if there are blood clots in the heart and also whether a patient who suffers from an abnormal heart rhythm is at high risk for stroke or not.

 

Stress echocardiography

This procedure also called echocardiography stress test or stress echo, is done to determine how well your heart and blood vessels are working, and to detect the presence of heart disease if any. It uses exercise or medication in order to make your heart beat harder than when it is resting, so that detailed pictures can be obtained. You are generally asked to exercise on a treadmill or stationary bike while your doctor monitors your blood pressure and heart rhythm.

 

Electrophysiology study

This is a process that observes the electrical activity of your heart to find where an abnormal heart beat is coming from. During this process, one or more thin, flexible wires (sheaths or catheters), are inserted into a blood vessel, and guided into your heart. to measure electrical signals and diagnose abnormalities in heart rhythm.
